Is my massage therapy covered by my health insurance?

With therapeutic massage being more widely accepted as a legitimate medical service by many insurance carriers, clients who have FSA and HSA credit or debit cards may use these to cover the expense of their health-related massage treatments. While most health plans clearly outline eligible medical expenses, we recommend the following steps to ensure approved coverage.

  1. Ask your healthcare practitioner to write a referral for your therapeutic massage care that provides the following information:

    • Reason for medical necessity (example: ‘back pain’)

    • The number of treatments OR recommended frequency and duration (example: ‘minimum 2 sessions per month for 12 months’)

    • The modality (Massage Therapy, Manual Therapy, etc.)

    • The diagnosis code

  2. Request an itemized receipt from our office for your therapeutic massage services. We will provide a customized receipt to support your claim for coverage or reimbursement under your health plan's FSA/HSA and include any therapist treatment notes, if necessary.
